4 PRELIMINARY REPORT ON NdSRIOANE D3RA SEPTIMBIE R 1-14.,1964 (Incorporating Preliminaty Report of Mr. George Cry, Office of Climatology.) Dxa will be long remembered not only for its havoc but for the fact that it was the first hurricane to enter northeastern Florida during this century. The calm, large eye mwed over St. Augustine shortly after midnight on September 10, Nearby Jacksonville had sustained winds of hurricane force (82 mph)for the first time in nearly 80 years of record. A 1006 millibar low that moved off the African coast south of Dakar on August 28, 1964, and passed south of the Cape Verde Islands on the 29th, must have been the initial disturbance that developed into Hurricane Dara. At 0640 EST on August 31, a TIROS VI11 satellite photograph showed the disturbance near llon latitude and 4OoW longitude with a central overcast area of 150 miles akross, external banding, and evidence of cirrus outflow. Early on September 1, reports from several ships placed the disturbance near 12'N latitude and 46% longitude. Of these ships, the Mormacscan appears to have passed closest to the center. The report from the ship indicated a wind shift from northeast to southwest and a pressure fall to millibars between and At the southwest wind was gusting to 40 rnph. Reconnaissance aircraft reached the area by midday and found a tropical storm with maximum winds of 60 mph and a lowest pressure of 998 millibars (29.47 inches). The first advisory on D3ra was issued by the San Juan Wzather Bureau office on September 1. Dora was located at 12.5'N latitude and 48.5'hlongitude or about 850 miles east of Trinidad. From this position Dora moved westnorthwest at 18 mph. It intensified to a hurricane by noon on September 2. The highest winds increased to 115 mph by the evening of the 2nd. Aircraft reconnaissance reported a drop in the central pressure to 981 millibars (28.97 inches) by the afternoon of Septenber 3. Hurricane Dxa slowed down and took a northwesterly course on September 3. The last aivisory issued by the San Juan Weather Bureau office was at 6 PM AST on Septesher 3 when Dora was located at 20.2ON latitude and 59.7"W longitude maving touard the northwest at 14 mph. On September 6, when centered over 300 miles south of Bermuda, the hurricane turned to a course slightly north of due west. At this time Dxa was a large, severe hurricane with a central pressure of 942 millibars (27.82 inches). DDra proceeded steadily toward the coast of southeastern Untted States. Prior to reaching landfall Hurricane Dura began an erratic course that included three distinct loops or cycloids, well tracked by the Weather Bureau radar station'at Daytona Beach. Figure 1 showv the chsages in the storm's eye position as the general approach to land was occurring. Daring this period the coastal areas of northeastern Florida were evacuated, the cycloidal path resulted in the gift of ajditional time for preparatory measures. The eye of the storm passed over the St. Augustine weather station with the station experiencing light winds for over an hour, to be replaced by an estimated wind of 125 mph and a lowest sea level pressure of inches. Hurricane warning6 had been in effect in the area of landfall for o?er 42 hours. The area encompassed by storm and hurricane winds was very large. On September 9, strong wihds, heavy rains, and high storm tides were experienced along the coast from central Florida to Georgia. The center moved into northeastern Florida early on September 10. After passing inland, Dora continued to aoue slowly slightly north of wsst, reached extreme southeastern Alabama on the night of September 11 with wind intdnsity much rehced, then turned eastward across southern Georgia on the 12th. As the circulation approached the coast, winds again increased, particularily ofeshjre and along the immediate coast. Dsring the 13th and 14th the storm continued rapidly northeastward, with the center paralleling the coast slightly inland to near Cape Hatteras, then rruwed offshore and passed about 75 alles southeast of Cape Cod. Winds exceeded hurricane force along the cogst from extrsne sodtheastern Gezrgia southward to Flagler Caddy, Florida, Highest sustained winds, estimated kt 125!nph fro* the southwest, occurred 3t St. A*igustine, immediately following the passage of the Center. The lowast pressure on land also occdrred at St. Augustine inches at 1 AM EST. The station was in the "ey6" from 0015 to Sustained winds near 100 vph &re reported along he coastline nxth 3f St. Asguatine. At Jscksonville Weather Bdreau 4lrport Station, the sustained wind, 82 mph at7:48w, was the first occurrence In Wea:her Bureau records there (beginxng in 1835) of full hurricane force. The strong, long-duration, onshore winds produced unusually high tides, from 5 to 8 feet or mare above normal, along the entire coast from the Daytona Beach area northward into Georgia. Tides estimated at 12 feet (4 feet higher than any previously known) swapt across Anastasia Island df St. Augustine, and the water level reached 10 feet above noma1 at Msyport. The stotm surge caused extensive beach erosion, inundated many bea-h communities, washed out beach roads, and swapt several residences into the wa. ALona the Gulf Coast between St. Marks and Tampa, tides ran fron 2 to locally 6 feet above n3rmal (at Yankeetown) a3 gale force southwasterly winds were sustained from the 10th through - most of the 12th. Floodine. was increased by runoff from hsauy rains on September 11 and 12.

5 Winds gradually diminished as Dora moved inland on its unusual westward course, but widespread and very heavy rainfall spread over interior sections of nxthern Florida and southeastern Georgia. This rainfall continued in many areas during both the westward and eastward passages of the storm center. Storm totals in excess of 10 inches fell over ai estimated 10,000 square mile area, aid totals more than 6 inches were general from near Brunswick and Waycross, Georgia to near Tallahassee and Orlando, Florida. The most intense reins fell in Lsfayette and Suwannee Counties, Florida 3n the 12th. Mayo recorded inches (loth-l3th), with inches durins th2 24-h~ur period ending at 6 PM EST;while Live Oak had inches during the 4-day storm period. Wind damages were extensive in coastal areas nsrth of Daytona Beach with the greatest destruction from St. Augustine to the Georgia border. High winds in Duval County, including the Jacksonville Metropolitan area, caused massive utility failures. Structural danage to buildings was limited to the coastal areas and to older frame buildings a short distance inland. Numerous trees wdre uprooted throughout the coastal counties, adding to the damage as they fell on buildings or across utility lines. Extensive wind-induced river flooding occurred in Jacksonville along the north bank of the S... Johns River. In addition to flooding along lakes and streams, many poorly-drained areas were completely inundated in north Florida. Damage to roads and bridges was extensive and several cornunities were isolated for several days by high waters. Considerable agricultural damage was sustained by flooding of unharvested corn, cotton, a,id peanuts in both Florida and Georgia. Damage was severe in many low-lying fields. Final storm damage estimates have not yet been made but a figure of $200 to $230 million is reasonable for Florida; $8 to $10.million for Georgia. Only one direct storm fatality - a drowning at Live Oak, Florida - is presently known. Twa Navy personnel died near Sanford, Florida on September 9 when an aircraft being e\racuated crashed on takeoff. Two men succunfied while securing boats: one near Brunswick, Georgia and another near Norfolk, Virginia. Damage resulting fros Dora in South Carolina was mln.3r but rains in the eastern part of the State ranged from 3 to over 8 inches. Several waterspouts were reparted between 1300 and 1400 on September 12 near Garden City Beach The only significant structural damage in North Carolina was caused by local storms - a waterspout at Carolina Beach, south of Wilmington at725 AM, September 10, and a tornado at Howell's Point, southwsst of Wilmington aboutgfblex, Septenber 12. Heavy rainfall and tides of 2 to 3 feet above normal were reported along the coastal sections. Dora's effects in Virginia were confined to heavy rainfall over the southeast sections, tides up to about 3.5 feet above normal and blown down tree limbs an3 adnings. In Maryland, Delaware, and No# Jersey tides reached only 1.5 to locally 4 feet above normal and rainfall totaled 1 to 2.50 inches. No reports of injury or damage have been made. Oaly the fringes of Dora were experienced in southeastern Massachusetts. Th?- principal effect was timely, badly-needed rainfall. Amounts wsre near 1 inch on Cape Cod and 2.50 inches at Nantucket. N3 significant damages were reported. ii
